St Louis, MO (January 1, 2022) – Two men were left with serious injuries following a motor vehicle accident in the St Louis area early Saturday morning, January 1. At around 12:35 a.m., authorities were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Interstate 270.
Reports from local authorities show that a 2012 Hyundai Sonata was involved in a crash on the westbound side of Interstate 270. The vehicle went off the road, struck a guardrail, and overturned near West Florissant Road.
Two passengers in the vehicle were injured. EMS transported 23-year-old Christian West and 24-year-old Trayvon Stockard to SSM Health DePaul Hospital where they underwent emergency medical care.
At this time, investigations surrounding the crash are underway.
Our thoughts are with Christian West and Trayvon Stockard at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
We see tens of thousands of people injured in motor vehicle accidents across the state of Missouri due to the negligence of other drivers. In many cases, victims are left with painful injuries from accidents caused by drunk drivers, distracted drivers, and those who choose to engage in reckless driving actions. These and other negligent actions leave countless innocent parties with broken bones, spinal cord injuries, internal organ damage, and other injuries that demand both immediate and long-term medical care.
People who are injured in accidents often deal with an array of challenges moving forward. Not only do are most victims left to deal with pain and suffering, but the financial consequences of accidents can be crippling for both victims and their families. People involved in collisions are often forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical treatment and vehicle repairs while going without wages from work.
Regrettably, many victims never recover from their injuries and are left permanently disabled and out of work. When victims are injured in accidents as a result of other drivers, it is important that they seek the legal guidance of a St Louis car accident attorney as soon as possible.
